June Madrona – A Long and Ugly Road

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

Recorded in a yurt next to chickens and a fountain. The song subjects vary from making out in the back of a car on the freeway, to drinking (just a little) too much, to feeling scared and hopeless after waking up to thunder rolling past you in the middle of the night. A broad range of emotions have been covered here, and they have all been written about quite eloquently. The simple stories within are the ones that, for many of us, often end up feeling the most important.

Polka Dot Dot Dot – Syzygy

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

Three people. One adventure. Cosmic alignment? Polka Dot Dot Dot, based in Olympia, WA, formed when three travelers (Jordan O’Jordan, Onyx of Olympia, and Colleen Johnson or Twig Palace) met on the treefern-speckled shores of New Zealand. Combining their solo sets for a last-minute spot at the Camp A Low Hum Music Festival, the Dots charmed crowds with their refreshing blend of folk, tin pan alley, and a cappella styles. Their first album, Love Letter to New Zealand reflected this impromptu musical spirit. This Limited Edition of 500 records will be available in TWO COLORS: 200 in TRANSLUCENT ROYAL PURPLE and 300 in TURQUOISE

Briana Marela – Speak from your Heart

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

Briana’s Marela’s voice is a lantern light guiding you through a shadow world of beauty and terror. Experimental, without the self indulgence, Briana’s first full length recording flirts with ambient electronics, fever-mad drumbeats, and fuzzed-out sk-1, while remaining rooted in solid, beautiful song writing, and a voice that could scatter clouds.

Chris Sand – Horse Graveyard

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

No gimmicks here, just guts. “Horse Graveyard” sneers and seduces but it always captivates as the lonesome cowboy hero recalls trials and triumphs from ghosts both past and present. Chris Sand’s dry and dusky drawl swaggers through the songs of “Horse Graveyard” fearlessly as he croons through a country baritone that is cool and removed yet hearty and exacting.

Christina Antipa – Everything Starts To Sing

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

Jordan ‘O Jordan Smith couldn’t stop raving about Christina so I asked him to write something about her. He hasn’t finished it quite yet as he’s leaving today on a Australia/New Zealand tour with Onyx of Olympia. So for now I’ll just say that the song “love me for the things i do” has followed me around for the last couple of months, and I have a feeling that this album is just the tip of the iceberg. -Ross

Eleanor Murray – For Cedar

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

“Borne through a year of home recording sessions and whittled cautiously from the bark and bulk of a fruitful storm, we now present to you the full-length debut from Olympia, WA songwriter Eleanor Murray. For Cedar’s opening track, Throughout the record, a backdrop of strings and distant vocals play commentary to the suits of arpeggios falling over the distance between forest and salt water.” – Anonymous Monk

Eleanor Murray – Oh Thunder

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

Olympia, WA, warble-songbird Eleanor Murray weaves songs from ferns and yarn. Music that is like looking into a glittery glass terrarium; each track is a miniature world of fog and trees. An album of country-folk dreams to make you swoon for a forest.

Ghost Mice – Debt of the Dead

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

Ghost Mice is a two-piece folk-punk band that hails from Bloomington, IN. Ghost Mice was created from the ashes of former pop-punk bands The Devil is Electric and Operation: Cliff Clavin. Chris Johnston (aka Chris Clavin) and Hannah Jones who played guitar and bass respectively for OP:CC and TDIE, decided to make their act acoustic so they could tour more easily and play almost anywhere. At the same time, Hannah dropped her bass in favor of a violin.

Jenny Jenkins – Oventoucher

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

“Like a flightless bird that tries to fly again / somehow I want love so bad even though I don’t want love.” As in the cover art, Jenny reaches for the frosted cake of love again and again, undeterred by the obvious dangers of the flaming oven. She confronts the subject of love with bravery, brutal honesty and a cast of talented olympians including Derek Johnson (Le Ton Mite, Unwound), Andrew Dorsett (Lake), Jen Kliese (Superduo), and Vince Brown (Tune Stranglers).

Joe Cappocia – Wake Up Rainy Morning

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

When I met Joe at an open mic he had dreadlocks and a hit song about pants with only one pocket. Joe told me of his plans to move out of his jeep into this treehouse he was building. He built that treehouse, it still stands. Then he built an even more amazing cottage and lived in that for awhile. Joe knows how to build things that will last. These songs are no exception. -Ross

June Madrona – Battlegrounds

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

This is the fourth June Madrona album. It features Micah Ellison on melodica and Danielle Chiero on flute, and explores themes of family and place. This lineup takes June Madrona’s composition to a new level, as Micah and Danielle are both classically trained musicians. The songwriting is as articulate and powerful as ever, and the musical accompaniment lends a gravity and fullness never before heard in June Madrona.

June Madrona – Lions Of Cascadia

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

Cascadia is a dream. Before America, before the explorers came and renamed all of the mountains and the rivers, borders were formed by communities and histories were written in the heart. In their 4th studio album June Madrona returns to some of the wistfulness and instrumentation of the Winged Life. Lions of Cascadia tells the stories of the destruction and rebirth of our communities, our friendships, and our bodies.

Mikah Sykes – Bad Feelings

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

“I don’t think the universe rewards a good deed, and I’m not even sure that love is always the answer. That said, the way Mikah Sykes’ childlike voice meets his folk-blues finger-picking and promenades around a track is pretty damn adorable, hippie-ish or not. Sykes’ tendency toward spacey experimentation is tethered by his deep love of the blues, which brings a familiarity and structure to his work that makes it feel like home. For a guy who recorded his last album in John Frusciante’s living room, he has stayed one of Portland’s better-kept secrets..but I doubt that’ll last long.” - Willamette Week, January 3rd-9th, 2007

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

Three people. One adventure. Cosmic alignment? Polka Dot Dot Dot, based in Olympia, WA, formed when three travelers (Jordan O*Jordan, Onyx of Olympia, and Colleen Johnson or Twig Palace) met on the treefern-speckled shores of New Zealand. On their 2nd full-length release, Syzygy (a term that refers to planetary alignment), the Dots deliver a record that is unique, beautiful, and more patient than their last. Despite the fairly existential themes of this new record, Polka Dot Dot Dot have crafted an album that floats and bobs on a cosmic sea, and is neither too heavy nor too light. Here, gravity has a gentle touch and allows us along on this trip, leaving us star-speckled and beaming at the end.

Poppet – The Blue Sky is Always Blue


This amazing new album from California artist Molly Raney.

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

Poppet is the bold alter-ego of California-raised musician Molly Raney. Before my genesis in 2008, Molly spent many years of her child and early adulthood training in a wide variety of musical fields from western classical to jazz to choral to Hindustani (Northern Indian classical tradition) to Gamelan (Indonesian ensemble music). She studied with vocal coach Dr. Rebecca Plack of the San Francisco Conservatory, a major influence on her vocal style and elasticity. This broad musical background, plus her involvement with community freeform radio station KDVS, accounts for Poppet’s own sonic diversity.

This modest release does little justice to the power and heart of Ithaca New York’s Ryan Clover. A fixture of the Ithaca radical community, his masterful song writing and furious banjo playing are bared to the listener in these sparse arrangements. This is the kind of album you can listen to over and over.

Sandman – Rough Notes from Otter Cove

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

The great-grandson of Montana and North Dakota pioneers, Sand grew up hearing cowboy poetry and country music. When hip hop culture hit “the Rez” (the Flathead Indian Reservation in western Montana, where Sand lived most of his early years), he learned to rap and rhyme to the pulse of baling machines and irrigation pumps. “Rough Notes From Ottercove” showcases the breadth of Sandman, ranging from old school hip hop, cowboy folk, and childrens songs. The album comes with a sumptuous hand letterpressed lyric booklet.

You Are Plural – No More

Additional DescriptionTracks/Description

“The duo’s music is primarily built around Ephriam Nagler’s Wurlitzer piano and Jen Grady’s cello,with plenty of vocal melodies contributed by both. The arrangements are minimal but lush at the same time,or at alternating times,as the pacing and arrangement of a song may dictate. The music has an earthy,organic feel akin to folk music,but I hate to really even plant that seed in your brain because I don’t think this is folk music. It’s intriguing,beautiful,and many other things,but not easily categorizable.”
